Watch UFC champion Ronda Rousey detail her love for Pokemon.

Apart from talking about which X-Men character she would be, who would win in a bout between Goku vs. Superman, Ronda Rousey has also recently went on the record to profess her love for Pokemon. In this video above, the UFC champion discusses how she got into the whole craze:

I got the trading cards first. Then I got the video game on Gameboy Color. My first one was Pokemon blue, and my first Pokemon was Charmander.

I got immediately hooked. I lost a bunch of weight and I was a small kid. I wouldn't stop playing. I just had a stack of milk and graham crackers next to me because I wouldn't get up. I'll just have a cracker and keep playing. I've got every single version of every generation of the game.

When Blue came out, I didn't just wait for Silver. I got Blue, I beat Blue. I got Red, I beat Red. I got Yellow, I beat Yellow. And when Gold and Silver and Platinum came out, I got all three of those and beat those. The first game I got, just on that one cartridge, had 200 hours on it.

I've done every single version and every single Pokemon since. The White, the Black, X, Y, Pokemon Stadium, Pokemon Stadium 2. The only ones I didn't play was Pokemon pinball, and that kind of bullsh*t.
